The global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic has been expectedly uneven. While some countries are cautiously returning to a new normal, others are being battered by the health crisis. Vaccinations were developed in record time, yet they may not provide complete protection as contagious variants of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 emerge.
What does this mean for the prospects of domestic and international travel? Global Guardian Chief Executive Officer Dale Buckner said:
“There is so much pent up demand for corporate and leisure travel we anticipate improvement will be better than predicted by the fourth quarter.”
But it may be a long time before travel looks and feels anywhere near like what it used to be before the pandemic. Until then, be prepared to wear your mask, understand what your travel insurance will (and will not) cover, pay close attention to travel advisories, and perhaps even carry vaccine documentation before you board that aircraft, ship, or train.
The State of Travel report will address 13 questions that will help you and your company better prepare for travel in the midst of the pandemic.
